" imo all Hunter attempts to rekindle his kindred spirit - but mostly to no avail. "

everybody thinks I'm nuts but I say their unfinished last album could have been one of their best in a long time. Certainly the strongst Jerry stuff since...?

Built to Last - horrible I thought. I don't like any of those songs even live ( except Victim )

In the Dark - Touch, too over played to give an otherwise good song an impartial review, West LA - can get hot but it is kind of basically just a reworked Althea, Push Comes to Shove - total throw away, Black Muddy River - eh

Go To Heaven - Althea - one of their all time great songs no question about it, rest of the Jerry tunes?

Shakedown - ok two great Jerry tunes on that one even if the album is over produced

Days Between, So Many Roads, and Lazy River are all really good melancholy tunes that conjure up some great imagery. At least imo

I'm in the minority that thinks Black Muddy River was one of the better latter era tunes. I don't why, but it often worked for me (perhaps because I was high as a kite first time i heard it and it did things for me).

Put me down for Black Muddy River as well. I liked it in the pre drums slot. Thought it worked well there.

the jerry [GD] comeback show - touch, candyman and black muddy river were all very emotional (as was the whole damn night and scene).

I'm with you guys, I actually like Black Muddy River a lot. It was a bit overplayed in 87-88 but the album had just come out so it's kinda to be expected. As for Push Comes to Shove not my favorite tune but not overly played either and not a bad song to throw in the mix every once in a while.

Of course, had they done that last album, Jerry would've probably wanted to put "Liberty" on it as well... which I see no one mentioned. And there's a good reason, too!

Liberty isn't my choice for something to listen to BUT I love the message. The whole don't tread on me thing which is one of the main things I love about the band - all the best attributes of America

True. I don't think Hunter ever really lost it, lyrically... :)

You know what makes the line between "me" and "them" so apparent? I literally do not know any of the songs you guys are talking about, cept Althea (which I like) and Touch, cause of the radio.

Amazing really--not being negative or "clique-Era-esque" or whatever...

Just amazing the band did so much, and I really don't know squat about the last 15 yrs. Really.

Well, the great thing about the Archive is, between the lot of us, we have experts on every era! And then there's LIA, in a league of his own...

I agree it could have been - the 3 songs I mention had potential, Jer just wasn't interested anymore
